Teagan Wylltson's best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures--goblins, shape-shifters, and beings of unearthly beauty but terrible cruelty--are hunting Teagan. Abby is always coming up with crazy stuff, so Teagan isn't worried. Her life isn't in danger. In fact, it's perfect. She's on track for a college scholarship. She has a great job. She's focused on school, work, and her future. No boys, no heartaches, no problems.
Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives. Finn's a bit on the unearthly beautiful side himself. He has a killer accent and a knee-weakening smile. And either he's crazy or he's been haunting Abby's dreams, because he's talking about goblins, too . . . and about being The Mac Cumhaill, born to fight all goblin-kind. Finn knows a thing or two about fighting. Which is a very good thing because, this time, Abby's right. The goblins are coming. (from goodreads)
I enjoyed this book very much. It had everything you could ask for in a book. Action, adventure, mystery, magic and even romance! I felt like I could really connect with and relate to the main character, Teagan. Although of course I don’t have magic trolls coming after me in the middle of the night, I could sympathise with her in her troubles with boys, work and school.
I would recommend this book to anyone Jr. High aged and above because of the only thing I didn’t like which was that this book swore. Not extensively, but it had its share of curse words. Other than that, I would recommend this book to any reader looking for a story of adventure - someone ready to travel to another world. Also, sometimes even I would get a little creeped out by this book and I wouldn’t want my elementary aged little sister to read it. If it scared me a little bit then I don’t think that anyone younger than Jr. High should be reading this. Other than that, I absolutely adored this book and I can’t wait for the next book in the series to come out because I can’t wait to find out what happens next!
